One of the founding crew members of Desert Hearts, Mikey Lion, is the one who likes to get the party started. He started DJing at the age of 13 with inspirations from Wu Tang and Daft punk, and at 17, he witnessed the legendary Daft Punk set at Coachella where he gained an incredible amount of inspiration, motivation, and enlightenment. From then on out, Mikey Lion has been tossing down some of the dankest and passionate beats. In 2011 at Lighting in a Bottle, he had played at his first burner festival but it was a few months after that at the revered Burning Man where everything changed. Mikey Lion had merged forces with his brother, Porkchop, the revered and highly experienced UK born, Lee Reynolds, and his life long friends, Marbs and Deep Jesus. After having joined together to create Desert Hearts Crew these close friends and DJ’s had a gnarly ride of adventures laid out in front of them, with several festival appearances and the hosting of a bi-annual festival, they had quickly “achieved iconic status in the North American Festival Scene.”
